So, the fact that Kylo Ren got a longsword got me thinking about the various Force users and their weapons… And for the most part it’s pretty straightforward: it’s a katana or a sabre. I mean, Vader’s outfit is based on a samurai armour, so a katana is a safe bet.
But Kylo breaks this line and now that I think about it, he wasn’t the first. Okay, there’s Maul’s quarterstaff sword, but he still retains that vaguely-Eastern-martial-artist look.
But Dooku? He’s an aristocrat, with that fancy curved light-sabre.
So… XIXth century gentleman with a sword-cane? I think so.
Coming up tomorrow: Kylo Ren as an actual knight, with longsword.
